Nobody is making a case that Rinne is the best goalie in the NHL other than a delusional Predators fan. He had two very nice seasons (one was outstanding). The last two years have been shaky at best.

Oh, I don't know.  I'm sure we can agree he's a top 10 at the least.  A goalie is sometimes only as good as the team in front of him.

im hoping we see something I still want to have ryan carter back.. priorities are a little screwed up..we sign the biggest bum around steve bernier and then we sign gionta before him ..unless hes asking for just much too much money it doesnt make sense

I don't think it was necessarily OUR priorities.  I think it was more along the lines of we offered all three of them contracts, I'm guessing that Bernier and Gionta just accepted the offers right away because they didn't have much interest around the league.  I think Carter may have gotten an offer or two from other teams that was better than New Jerseys and Carter has remained in contact with Lou under the assumption that Lou is trying to move someone to make space or at least would like to because that's how much he'd like Carter back.  He also could have asked for a little bit more money.  Simple as that.

What other explanation for Carter not going elsewhere is there?  I don't think he wants to be somewhere else, even if it's for more money.  Carter is quickly turning into a Jay Pandolfo like character for me.  Really like those 4th line player aspects he brings to the table.  He can be that number 5 PK forward as well.

I'm with everybody else that he should have been the first of CBGB to come back.  He's one of those guys that really turns up his play when it starts to hit the end of the season.

Dont forget they will have back arguably the best goalie in the world.

Rinne?  Maybe.  He has to put together a good few seasons of being healthy.  I'd put him in the top 5 and top 10.

argh. this is so stupid. stevens did this with gelinas too - you're big - you've gotta hit and be physical.


not everyone is a good hitter and can necessarily play physically. lidstrom wasn't physical - he was just excellent positionally.


"not everyone can hit, be physical - you either know how to do it or you don't." you can figure out who told me that.

I'd like to bring this back up and maybe discuss this some more if the board isn't dead.  I was reading over at HF and they were raving about Santini, pointing out that Stevens was a great hitter and defenseman because he was such a good skater and you need to be a great skater in order to be able to hit well and check the way Stevens did.  If you get a defenseman that doesn't skate very well, you get Anton Volchenkov.  If he can skate well, you're looking at maybe closer to a Niklas Kronwall kind of player.   I found this an interesting way of looking at physical defenseman.

I think 90% of hockey analysts and 75% of devils fans said we'd miss the postseason last yead, bro

Every fvcking analyst and their mother says that we will miss the playoffs EVERY YEAR.  I think even in 2012 we weren't really considered contenders with the line up that we were icing at the time, which was Stanley Cup caliber.
